#BREAKING: Just a few minutes ago in #Hama, #Syria, the #Israeli Air Force targeted an ammunition storage site in use by #IRGC Quds Force. SAM sites of #Syrian Arab Air Defense Force tried to prevent the airstrike by firing their surface-to-air missiles at the cruise missiles.

The #EU Commission is drafting proposals for an oil embargo on #Russia, the foreign ministers of #Ireland, #Lithuania and the #Netherlands said at a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Luxembourg, although there was no agreement to ban #Russian crude.
#Australia, #Canada and the #US, who are less reliant on Russian supply than Europe, have already banned Russian oil purchases. EU countries are split, given their higher dependency and the potential for the move to push up already high energy prices in #Europe.

“How can someone live without bread?” were the words of displaced Syrians in #Rukban camp, where all bakeries were recently shut down due to shortage in flour, leaving at least seven thousand people besieged in the camp and denied any humanitarian assistance. 1/ 🧵
In a remote area of abandoned desert, 1800 families are still suffering from international community’s negligence and apathy. At least seven thousand people, most of them women and children, were left to starve in #Rukban despite calls for help that span years of suffering. 2/

Having worked in Moscow when #Russia intervened in #Syria in 2015 & engaged RUS officials/experts on #Syria for yrs, I see 5 parallels in approach to #Ukraine vs #Syria

1. Sequential war
2. Encirclement/corridors
3. "Human shield" claims
4. Foreign fighters
5. CW claims

1. Sequential war: RUS recently termed 1st phase of #UkraineWar done, announcing focus on Donbas. In #Syria war, Russia had declared new phase in 2017, establishing de-escalation zones (DEZs) in Western parts, which freed up regime resources to take more territory toward the East
Once that was done, regime/Russia turned back & we saw sequential take-over of DEZs (E Ghouta, Homs, Deraa) in 2018 under guise of CT. Not at all to say that sequencing in Ukraine will be the same. Return of larger-scale fighting toward W Ukraine will depend on...

Coincidentally my article was published in @n_nationalism on the 11th anniversary of the #SyrianRevolution
It took a lot of work & revisions to finally get it out. It simultaneously evokes beautiful & painful memories about the greatest political event in my life🧵1/6 Image
This article traces the discursive re-articulation of the sectarian narratives as part of the meaning-making processes in the context of the Syrian uprising's first 3 years and the country's devolution into civil war. It criticizes using groupist terms and reifying practices 2/6
Specifically, it traces how local and supralocal activists' reactions to the regime's brutal violence and its master narrative culminated in the activation and politicization of the category of ‘sect’ as a residual sociality (Lisa Wedeen's (2019)+Raymond Williams's (1977)) 3/6

Made a mess of these threads. Integrating them here
#Ukraine's President Zelensky said a few hours ago he is still going to Germany tomorrow for the Munich Security Conference. Whether this is supposed to promote calm or what is unclear; it's a hell of a time for him to leave his capital.
President #Biden just said in his White House address that the US believes the #Russians will invade #Ukraine in the next few days and "they will target Ukraine's capital, Kiev". Image

This morning @haaretzcom had this map of #Israel printed, which accurately reflects its borders, not including the occupied #Palestinian territory (West Bank - while including Jerusalem, which it shouldn't have - and Gaza) and the occupied #Syrian Golan. Image
The outraged reactions to this simple depiction of legal realities demonstrates the extent to which annexation of occupied territory is the norm for mainstream Israeli audiences, not to be questioned or challenged.
It is the same people who reject claims of #IsraeliApartheid, that are happy to admit #Israeli acquisition of territory by use of force, in serious breach of peremptory norms of international law #juscogens under Article 2 @UN Charter. Image

It was clear that developments in #Kazakhstan were fueled by many Western-funded NGOs residing in the nation. The CIA-affiliated @NEDemocracy, provided $1 million in 2020 to so-called civil society groups within Kazakhstan, says @SpiritofHo…
The U.S. has an extensive history of arming and funding opposition groups abroad for its own geopolitical ends. Millions of dollars were used from 2011 to 2019 to start violent protests in #Venezuela, attempt a coup in #Nicaragua, provide #Syrian rebels with weaponry.
The U.S. has also stepped up its support for color revolutions in Eurasia in an attempt to thwart #China and #Russia's growing influence in the region. This includes a coup in #Ukraine and a coup attempt in #Belarus and the unrests generated in China's HKSAR.

In an exclusive interview with France 24, former US ambassador to Syria Robert Ford said that "US policy has failed to establish a Syrian government through negotiations," in addition to failing to unite the Syrian "opposition" groups.
Ford also mentioned that there are many divisions between the "opposition" groups, which were present since the beginning, contributing to the US' failure in achieving its interests.
"As the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is present, & controls 70% of the Syrian territory, including major cities, the armed opposition is unable to remove him. Despite the destruction of the Syrian economy, in the end, Assad won the war."

For anyone familiar with the inner workings of the #Assad regime (& the palace in particular) for the many last decades, this cannot be an anodine event…
More on “Abou-Salim”, #Assad’s (father & son) Chief of Staff, deceased yesterday:
"وكان يشرف #أبو_سليم على تنفيذ أوامر الرئيس في مختلف الوزارات والمؤسسات والهيئات، ويتابع آليات التنفيذ لهذه الأوامر ونتائجها، فضلاً عن وجوده الدائم كـ “حكم ووسيط” بين الضباط والجهات المتصارعة داخل النظام ، حيث كانت كلمته مسموعة لأنها أوامر الرئيس."
